Antonio Conte again wants to try and sign Adama Traore who currently plays for Barca on loan from Wolves. Traore has always been on the radar of Antonio Conte. For Conte, Traore is the missing piece of his attack who can accompany Kane and Son with great ease.
Currently, Spurs play Bergwijn and Moura who’re proper wingers. Thanks to Dejan Kulusevski who has somewhat filled that void but Conte brought him mainly to strengthen the midfield. The midfield still remains an issue but once the wing position is taken, Kulusevski can drop back to the midfield.
Back in January, Spurs offered him a life-changing contract but Traore decided to go to Barca who offered a much-compromised contract. At that time spurs weren’t in a good position to attract world-class talent. Spurs in current scenarios have shown it’s never too late to make an epic comeback. Champions league football for next season with a brilliant manager who wants to win, Spurs can very much attract good talents all over Europe.
Traore to Barcelona? Will it happen
Traore after his loan spell shouldn’t sign down for a permanent move, especially with Barcelona’s financial situation. Even after that Barcelona have launched their renovation project of Camp Nou which itself will cost a fortune for the club. During and even after renovation is complete it’ll be difficult for Camp Nou to sign big players and offer them a lucrative stay.
Spurs on the other hand are backing Conte completely to complete this transfer. Traore walks straight into Conte’s side as a right-winger with electric pace and power. Traore possesses superb attributes but has never been successful in fully utilizing his capabilities. It has many reasons, at times it’s the team and sometimes getting burnt out due to overuse.
Spurs have other options to go for but none of them are premier league proven especially against the big five. The transfer in the end falls to the player who’ll choose what’s best for him.
